Over 70 Art Centres across Australia participated in DAAF in 2021!

The Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation would like to acknowledge the incredible staff and artists of participating Art Centres. Without their dedication, vision, hard work and willingness to share their art and culture, DAAF could not happen.
